Turning a Child's Tears Into War Propaganda

On Yisrael Katz and others.

Transport Minister Yisrael Katz is widely expected within Likud circles to take first place in the party primaries to be held this Sunday. The attraction of the oafish-looking politician is lost on those who are not of the 123,000-strong Likud membership, but as one party insider explained to me last week, "There's nothing Yisrael won't do or say to make Likud members happy, and they appreciate that."
